Oh, headache? Do you know someone who never feel a headache? And it is not surprising, if you consider that a lot of people sleep less than 8 hours a day, or not fed regularly.
There are hundreds of different reasons that can cause headaches. If you do not want to drink a pill, you can try to cure a headache naturally.
Here are some of the most popular natural remedies:
1. Place a cold compress. They act like a anesthetic. You do not have to have ice, just take frozen vegetables and wrap in a towel. Place that on forehead or the temples. Or you can use wet towel with cold water.
2. Massage with essential oil of mint on your temples. The essential oil of mint reduces headache. But besides the temples, also massage your neck and shoulders to relieve tension.
3. Put mint tea bags on your eyes. Take two bags mint tea and soak in hot water. Then lie down, close your eyes and put your bags on the eyelids. Lie about 10 minutes.
4. Soak your feet in warm water with a few drops of lavender oil. Hot water will cause better circulation in your legs and thus reduce the pressure in the blood vessels through your body including your head. Lavender oil with its flavor helps to relax and relieve pain.
5. Drink chamomile tea, rosemary or ginger. Take a 15 minute break, make your tea and drink it slowly in a quiet room. Chamomile tea contains substances that can reduce pain and help you relax. It is believed that tea of rosemary prevents rising pain. Ginger is used for treating headache and dizziness. Place two slices of ginger in half a liter of water, cover the pan and leave to simmer very quiet half hour.
6. Drink coffee (or coffee with lemon). Most people at first sign of headache captured a cup of coffee. Yes, coffee really helps headaches, but we should not exaggerate. 1-2 cups of coffee can help, but if it’s more, than that can have a negative effect. Many people vouch that coffee with lemon helps even more. Well, not bad to drink strong Turkish coffee with a little lemon.
7. Drink two glasses of water. Believe it or not, the water can remove the headache. One of the most common causes of headaches is dehydration. To prevent the emergence of a headache from dehydration, drink water regularly throughout the day, especially if you exercise or when the weather is hot.
8. Use the power of “Hoku” point. Use the tips of the thumb and forefinger of one hand to press the flesh between the thumb and forefinger of the other hand. Press gently, massage the point in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes, then repeat the same on the other hand. If you are pregnant, do not use this method.
9. Tie a scarf on your forehead. Take a bandanna or a scarf and tie it tight on the forehead. At the same moment you can feel that the headache is reducing. Some people recommend the scarf to be soaked in wine vinegar.
